Episode two of America’s Healthcare Challenge has reaction to the decision of the century from the Senior United States Senator from Iowa, Charles Grassley. On Thursday, June 28th, the Supreme Court ruled the individual mandate constitutional as enforced through the tax code. A political firestorm has ensued. What does that mean to you and your doctor?
I was joined by Dr. Harris Frankel, President of the Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NeHII) who will be co-hosting several episodes, and Dr. Tom Tape, Professor of Internal Medicine at UNMC, and Chair of the Board of Directors of the American College of Physicians. They provided their expertise on this issue from an acting physician’s perspective, and help us understand why health care costs so much.
